Hiking Around Buena Vista

When Javi and I didn’t have anything planned during our stay in Buena Vista we went hiking on different trails. Our friend Jen recommended Angel Falls and our B&B host Connie told us to check out Cottonwood Pass, so we decided to take them both up on their suggestions. In between horseback riding and the goat farm, we drove up to Cottonwood Pass to check out the view. We parked our car at the bottom of a big hill and climbed up to the very top of the pass – in my cowboy boots no less – and it was just gorgeous. For the first 10 minutes we were up there nobody was up there with us, so we set the timer of our camera to take photos and in my rush to try to join Javi I started falling over backwards, scaring Javi half to death (I was fine! I swear!).  We finally met up with a nice couple who seemed camera savvy enough and asked them to take a photo and…well, we finally got one after a few tries! I was smiling so hard – do you think I was happy or what? Cuando Javi y yo no teniamos nada planeado durante nuestra estadia en Buena Vista, salimos a caminar diferentes senderos cercanos al pueblo. Nuestra amiga Jen nos recomendo Angel Falls (cascada)  y nuestra anfitriona en el alojamiento, Connie, nos recomendo ir al paso Cottonwoods, asi que decidimos hacerles caso a ambas e probar las sugerencias. Entre el paseo a caballo y la granja de cabras, manejamos al paso Cottonwoods para admirar la vista. Estacionamos el auto al final de una colina y escalamos a la cumbre del paso – en mis botas vaqueras – y es precioso. Durante los primeros 10 minutos que estuvimos arriba no habia nadie, asi que pusimos la camara en automatico para poder sacarnos fotos, y en mi apuro por ponerme en la foto con Javi, me empeze a ir para atras, asustando a Javier a muerte (Estaba bien! Lo juro!). Finalmente conocimos a una pareja muy dulce que parecian saber que hacer con una camara y le pedimos que nos sacaran una foto…bueno, despues de unos cuantos intentos sacamos una buena! Yo sonreia con tantas ganas – creen que estaba feliz o que?
On Thursday morning we didn’t have anything planned so we decided to go find Angel Falls – but we found Agnes Vaille Falls instead. It was a half-mile trail – pretty short but strenuous enough for a nice morning hike. We got up there and set the timer for a couple photos again – this time with no dangerous mishaps – and then took a few more photos of the scenery before heading back down. A great way to start the morning! We figured if we ever move out to CO we’ll go hiking as often as we can on as many different trails as we can – of course with the dogs – and in the meantime we need to hike more in and around Nashville. It’s such great exercise and so nice to be outside! Nothing beats the Colorado scenery though – it’s incredibly beautiful! El Jueves en la manana no teniamos nada planeado asi que decidimos salir a buscar Angel Falls (cascada) – pero en vez encontramos Agnes Vaille Falls.  Fue una subida de media milla – corto pero cansador, lo suficiente para una caminata matutina. Llegamos arriba y pusimos la camara en automatico para sacarnos fotos – esta vez sin peligros – y despues sacamos fotos del paisaje mientras bajabamos. Una gran manera de empezar la manana! Creemos que si alguna vez nos mudamos a Colorado vamos a salir a caminar senderos lo mas seguido posible y descubrir la mayor cantidad de senderos posibles – con los perros claro – y por mientras necesitamos salir a caminar senderos alrededor de Nashville. Es una gran ejercicio y tan rico estar afuera al aire libre! Nada le gana a los paisajes de Colorado eso si – es increiblemente lindo!
